Charities Fund Board
Our Club has a West Olympia Rotary Charities Fund Board that manages a special not-for-profit West Olympia Rotary Charities Fund that is used to support Club programs, community service efforts, and special projects. The West Olympia Rotary Charities Fund Board, elected annually by the membership, operates under specific Bylaws and Fund Guidelines.
Charities funds are used to:
1. Support qualified 501(c)3 non-profit activities and organizations that have objectives consistent with those of Rotary International. Emphasis is on local support for youth and family services, social welfare, and education as well as Rotary International special projects and disaster relief.
